On the improbability that Ὀνησίφορος, who, according to tradition, suffered martyrdom at Parium, a city of Mysia, in the beginning of ii/A.D., is to be identified with the friend and disciple of Paul (2 Timothy 1:16; 2 Timothy 4:19), see W. M. Ramsay Exp T ix. p. 495 f. The identification, as Ramsay points out, becomes impossible if we accept the tradition embodied in the Acts of Paul and Thekla (A.D. 150–170), which makes Onesiphorus, a native of Antioch, converted by Paul on his first visit, and already a householder at that time, about A.D. 48.
